Do I need professional treatment?

During your search for addiction treatment, you may have wondered about the possibilities of recovering at home, without professional help.

We appreciate that this is commonly considered due to the expected lower costs of going it alone, the avoidance of feelings of embarrassment or shame when speaking to professionals, or even the belief that you can control your addiction without medical assistance.

In any case, the common question is, ‘do I really need professional treatment?’

The short answer is: Yes if you wish to reach a full recovery safely and properly.

Though some individual’s battling addiction can succeed with DIY detoxes and at-home recovery attempts, this is usually due to the less severe addictions they are experiencing, or the much lower class drugs that they have used.

The hard truth is that attempting to quit alone without professional intervention can be extremely challenging, and can present you with many obstacles along the way.

One of the most common obstacles that lead to relapses among those trying to recover is the lack of support.

If you are lucky, you may have a network of family and friends on hand to help you throughout your recovery journey, but this sadly isn’t the case for everyone.

Having trusted loved ones around to offer support or guidance, or simply to stop you from giving in to temptations, is crucial if you are considering recovering at home. Without this, withdrawal can become even more difficult than it already is.

It is also incredibly easy to access further drugs and alcohol when recovering at home, which can make resisting cravings that much harder.

As mentioned, having people like friends and family around to help you ignore these temptations can help, but even then the easy access to substances can sometimes prove too much for those trying to withdraw, especially during the vulnerable detox phase.

At-home recovery attempts are not only hard but also extremely risky, too.

Detoxes performed incorrectly or without the proper medical knowledge can turn sour quickly, sometimes causing long-term damage to the body, and in some cases, even death.

Another huge obstacle that is commonly faced with DIY recoveries is the lack of treatment for the psychological aspects of a drug or alcohol addiction. A disorder like an addiction impacts, not just the physical body, but also the brain.

Addictions can heighten already existing mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety, or can sometimes even be the cause of these conditions.

At home it is highly unlikely that you will undergo therapy or counselling, leaving the mental aspects of your addiction out of your treatment plans.

This can mean that even if you succeed with the physical detox and withdraw completely from substances, the emotional barriers and triggers will still remain, and could lead to an unwanted and early relapse.

In a rehabilitation facility, such as a drug and alcohol rehab in Thaxted, these problems that are faced when recovering alone at home are nullified.

Clients who do not have friends or family able to help can rely instead on the support of the team at their chosen rehab, no further drugs or alcohol can be accessed on the rehab premises, all procedures such as detoxes are carried out safely and properly by medical professionals, and all aspects of addiction are treated to ensure a full recovery.

This is why even though some individuals may succeed with at home recoveries, residential rehab programmes will almost always be recommended due to the many benefits that are attached, and the higher success rate that they boast.

When to reach out

We understand just how difficult it can be to admit you may be experiencing a drug or alcohol addiction, let alone how challenging it is to then ask for help for said addiction.

However, even though reaching out is hard, it is undoubtedly the right thing to do.

We recommend reaching out for professional help as soon as you begin to notice the signs and symptoms of addiction in your life. Information about these symptoms can be found anywhere online, but a few of the main and most common ones include:

  • Turning to substances for comfort or in order to avoid difficult feelings.
  • Suffering from withdrawal symptoms when you are away from the substance you use.
  • Lying to loved ones about your use of the substance.
  • Struggling to think of much else besides the substance and your next use of it.
  • Experiencing a more heightened sense of anger and frustration than usual.
  • Noticing a drastic change in your appearance such as a sudden loss of weight.
  • And hiding stashes of the substance in secret places.

If you notice any of these signs in your life, or that of a loved one, we suggest calling us immediately on 0800 140 4690.

The earlier we catch an addiction, the easier it can be to treat, and the higher chance there is of less damage done to the body.
